I too have a 1:1 netbook ratio in my classroom. I am currently the only elementary classroom in the district piloting this. I got them in the spring of last year. It has been a big learning process, but I am really getting to the point that it is integrated almost 50% of our day. Students are still participating in guided reading and other traditional classroom activities. Programs I use to support my students include a ning (class landing page), epals, Google docs, Moodle, and now Kid Biz 3000. It is amazing the impact this is having on my students. As students enter the work force in the future, technology will be integrated into almost every aspect of their career. We might as well get them started now!
Thank you so much for sharing! It is great to hear from others doing a 1:1. What grade level are you? I completely agree that technology is our world and we need to get them started now! Thanks again for your comment and I hope we hear from you again soon!
